Overview

About the property

Sleeps 2. Carefree, quiet, relaxed, spacious vacation (honeymoon) heaven.

A large private cottage/home with full amenities located 2 miles above Waimea Bay, including, in addition to the full bathroom, an added outdoor shower area, beautiful acre of green lawn and a TV room with 50' Plasma TV/DVD and quiet split Air Conditioning.

Away from the crowds, this is a beautiful, serene, gated property for the honeymooners, couples or quiet individuals. Less than 5 minutes to beach at a cool elevation. Surrounded by tropical fruit trees and plants including Mango, Banana, Avocado, Star Fruit, Tangerine, Lychee, Jack Fruit, Lemon, Pomolo, Macadamia and Coconut trees.

Sleeps 1-2 adults maximum, no exceptions (one king size bed + one single bed). We added a single bed located in the TV room for two singles traveling. The TV/Bed room can be private by closing the curtains. To maintain the special nature and experience of your stay; sorry, not suitable for children and please, no smoking.

At the perfect elevation with cool Hawaiian breezes and away from noise and traffic this cottage/home gives you privacy with tinted glass windows, WiFi, cable, washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher, AC and of course, plenty of aloha!

For the quiet, private persons you will find this to be a very special place to stay for a total retreat and recharged vacation. You will feel at home and at peace in this beautiful, tropical paradise.

We like to think of our place as a retreat from the world. A place to recharge, a base to return to, a feeling of peace and beauty. It is a home, away from home. Of course, we want the cottage to reflects this and wish our guests this experience.

This is just the best place to stay on the island!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a lot bigger than it looks in pictures, it has a cozy TV room (you don't see the TV on the wall), the king bed is really comfortable, and the kitchen is as large a regular one at home. Rick is a great host, even helps you with your bags! The location is perfect, close to everything but far enough away to ensure a quiet haven. You want to go into Haleiwa and eat at Haleiwa Joe's, the Blackened Mahi Mahi is the best. The landscaping is beautiful and you will enjoy the outdoor private shower. The food trucks are an institution here and you have the largest concentration of them right down at the bottom of the hill. Ted's Bakery is just up the road, yum. At the bottom of the hill there is also a great beach with parking to watch the sunset. We would not even consider spending our next trip anywhere else.

"Peaceful, relaxing and very comfy stay at this cottage!"

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Rick and Inga for giving us an awesome place to stay, while we were visiting our mom, in Hawaii! We love the North Shore, and the beach, and the relaxed aloha spirit. My husband grew up on the North Shore, and we have stayed many places, this one was tops on our list. Rick and Inga were there for our arrival, to help us get acquainted with the surroundings, and were extremely helpful, whenever we had questions. They also respected our privacy. This place is beautiful, very peaceful, and the gated security was an added plus. So many favorites of this place: , the beautiful view, the rooster singing in the morning, an awesome, comfortable king size bed, great kitchen to cook in, beautifully decorated, and I absolutely loved the outdoor shower!!! We were surprised that air conditioning had just been installed, another plus! We were sad to leave this place, and hope to return on another visit! Thank you again, to Rick and Inga. All of your directions, & instructions were very clear. (comforting) We loved it!

Beyond beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a quiet, private, and most importantly authenticate Hawaiian retreat well away from the big city and we found it in Inga and Rick's beautiful cottage. The location, right in the heart of the famous North Shore was ideal for day tripping locally and all over the island - a five minute drive took us to the Hawaiian pipeline where the best surfers in the world were riding 25'+ waves. A few minutes in the other direction you find any number of breathtaking white sand beaches with mild waves perfect for body surfing, SUP'ing, snorkeling, and every other water activity imaginable. A few minutes past that in and you're in a fun little tourist town full of restaurants and eclectic shops and galleries. Multiple hiking trails also dot the area, and Rick was an invaluable guide to the best of them.

The cottage itself is simply beautiful - it is bright, open, and masterfully decorated by Rick's wife Inga, a formidable artist in her own right. Every detail is accounted for - lights are labeled, high-end appliances (stove, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer) are supplied as are cooking supplies and utensils of every stripe. Reading books abound, including local travel works as well as guilty-pleasure soft covers. All of the beach supplies you could ever want were also provided - a big beach umbrella, coolers, snorkeling gear, body surf boards, etc. - we were expecting to have to purchase or rent this type of thing so were delighted at the quality and scope of what was available.

The property is fully enclosed by mature native trees and tropical greenery, every plant lovingly cultivated by Inga over a lifetime. A secure electric gate ensures privacy - when you drive in through that gate, it feels like you are entering your own personal compound.

If you are looking for a quiet escape and a true sense for what it's like to live on Oahu's North Shore, we can't recommend this property highly enough!

Aloha

Ian and Dani

Quiet, clean, beautiful, serene, and clean( oh did I already say that?!?:)

  • 5 of 5

The grounds and cottage were simply beautiful. Up Pupukea above any noise and traffic the North Shore could occasionally bring, was literally a breath of fresh air to come home to every day and night. This was my wife's 1st time in Hawaii and while it'll never be debated that the place is amazing, this being my 4th, knew that while not bothersome, the sight of little bugs and geckos indoors are just part of the Aloha lifestyle. My wife being the city gal she is wasn't too fond of that idea, but boy is she spoiled now. There was actually not one little bug we seen, and believe me, my wife kept an eye out(hahah). Besides that, the space itself was wide open and modern with all the amenities(and more) anyone could hope for. The bed was as comfortable as mine at home, both indoor and outdoor showers were extremely clean and functional with excellent water pressure. Brand new laundry and kitchen appliances with granite countertops. There were wonderful beach chairs, coolers, and other beach necessities as well as private gated parking. As for Rick and Inga they could not have been anymore sweet, interesting, and non-intrusive. I could go on and on and haven't even touched on the actual place of the North Shore which believe me speaks for itself. The Foodland and food trucks at the bottom of the hill(a 5 min drive) can supply you with all your needs, i.e. food, alcohol, sunscreen- and Haliewa which is a cute little town with shopping, restaurants, and such as well as Turtle Bay with it's repertoire of such are only a 20 min drive away. Some of the best beaches in the world are less than 10 and there is no shortage of them. So why are you still reading this, go book with Rick and Inga(haha)-mahalo!!
